The Smell of Death
Much of the bad stuff that happens is based on real crimes--but of course fictionalized. But this is also the beginning of the romance between Detective Milligan and Stacey Wilbur.
The idea for this book and the title came from my cop son-in-law pointing out to me what is left out of most mysteries, TV shows and movies is the smell of death. That has now become more realistic, but at the time I was writing Smell of Death it was usually absent.
One place in this book that is not visited before is the campground on the southern outskirts of Rocky Bluff, and it plays an important part in one of the plot lines.
And as always, there is as much about the family lives of the characters as the cases that are being investigated.
The reason I'm writing these snapshots of the new revised and edited versions of this series out of order, is because this is the order they are being published in.
